Why get a Ragdoll instead of any other cat?  Because they are the best cats ever!  Ragdolls are bonded with their people.  They want to help you with everything you are doing – they follow you around the house, sit on your keyboard if you are working on your computer, meet you at the door if you left without them, and they want to sleep on your bed.  They are sweet, kid friendly, dog friendly, and various other animal friendly cats.  I have had cats my whole life and these are the best.  To meet a Ragdoll is to love a Ragdoll.
